[Bug 1568731] Re: Asus ROG G752VT WMI and Trackpad


Did this issue start happening after an update/upgrade?  Was there a
prior kernel version where you were not having this particular problem?

Would it be possible for you to test the latest upstream kernel? Refer
to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Please test the latest
v4.6 kernel[0].

If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following
tag 'kernel-fixed-upstream'.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug as

Thanks in advance.

  Asus ROG G752VT WMI and Trackpad

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Issue 1: Asus WMI Hotkeys

  Most of the ASUS Function keys are not working (sleep, aeroplane, Keyboard Brightness, Screen Brightness, Trackpad on/off, Calculator)
  In addition the macro keys do not register as button presses either

  The ones that are working are : Screen on-off, alt-screen switcher,
  Volume up/down/mute

  Issue 2: Trackpad

  The trackpad is just straight up not working. There are two devices in xinput -list which I assume are the trackpad:
  ⎜   ↳ ASUS Tech Inc. ASUS HID Device          	id=15	[slave  pointer  (2)]
  ⎜   ↳ ASUS Tech Inc. ASUS HID Device          	id=16	[slave  pointer  (2)]
  But I can't get it to activate.

  This is the xinput props:
